Leica M-3 series nine: A return to black and white film

” GOOD COMPOSITION IS LIKE A SUSPENSION BRIDGE – EACH LINE ADDS STRENGTH AND TAKES NONE AWAY. “

A River Crossing:

Sundial Bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava crosses the Sacramento River at a reported cost of $23.5 million. The bridge design is a cantilever spar cable-stayed structure that spans 700 feet.

The bridge follows Calatrava’s earlier designs in Spain and Argentina.  True to its design it is accurate as a sundial one day per year but offers fisherman a first-class backdrop while packed drift boats maneuver pockets for salmon, steelhead and rainbow trout.
